CPI's CUBE-iT Plus Wall-Mount Cabinet Receives OSHPD
Chatsworth Products' (CPI) Cube-iT Plus Wall-Mount
Cabinet System, used to store and protect equipment
in telecommunications rooms or public spaces, recently
received the California Office of Statewide Health Planning
and Development (OSHPD) Pre-Approval of Manufacturer's Certification (OPM).
In the state of California, OSHPD evaluates and approves construction designs. OSHPD OPM is the preapproval process that allows manufacturers to submit
analysis or test data prepared by a registered design
professional to support design requirements of the code.
CPI's Cube-iT Plus wall-mount cabinet received OSHPD
OPM-0196-13, which means it fulfills the requirements
of the latest California and International Building Codes. As a pre-approved design, the
OSHPD OPM can be incorporated into construction documents, making the design and
approval process quicker and easier.
With strength and rigidity, the Cube-iT Plus wall-mount cabinet supports up to
200 lbs. (90.7 kg), and the swing-out cabinet body enables easy access to the rear of
installed equipment. Vented side panels increase airflow, and two front door styles
are available (solid metal and plexiglass.) Other features include adjustable 19 inch EIA
threaded equipment mounting rails, pre-punched rear panel with knockouts for conduit
and rounded corners and edges on front door to improve safety.
Cradle Releases SC/Tetra, scSTREAM and HeatDesigner Version
12 (V12) CFD Software
Software Cradle has released
the newest version of SC/Tetra
(general purpose unstructured
mesh), scSTREAM (general
purpose Cartesian mesh), and
HeatDesigner (Cartesian mesh for
electronics). SC/Tetra is general
purpose, unstructured grid CFD
software used when accurate geometrical representation is critical
to the design solution.
SC/Tetra V12 features a single
pitch shape extraction for centrifugal pumps that reduces calculation
time and cost. An optional Smart
Blades tool can parametrically create, solve and post-process axial fan designs, including automated parametric studies. Additionally, shape optimization using the Adjoint
Method that can be used to optimize geometrical shape to minimize or maximize force,
e.g. determining the optimized aerodynamic shape to minimize drag force. HeatPathView visually displays energy flows and heat balances in a thermal system.
scSTREAM is general purpose, structured grid CFD software used when exact geometry details do not strongly influence the overall flow field. HeatDesigner is specially
designed structure grid CFD software for electronics cooling.
New V12 features for scSTREAM/HeatDesigner include expanded capabilities for
the cut cell function that slices off portions of Cartesian elements to more accurately
simulate non-Cartesian geometries. One of the new capabilities in V12 enable improved
prediction of flow separation. Another enables cut cell to be used with multiblock.
Additional features include enhanced radiation capabilities to accommodate diffuse
transmittance, improved particle tracking including particle adhesion to moving objects,
conversion to condensate, and particle tracking in a multiblock mesh. scSTREAM/HeatDesigner also supports Unicode that eliminates garbled text no matter what language
setting is used.
